As part of the Government’s plan to ‘level up’ education, a whole host of changes are set to be introduced. With Ofsted announcing they will be inspecting every school by 2025, it is vital that senior leaders are able to demonstrate that they are taking action on school improvement.

“My mission is clear; I want to make sure every single child across our country has access to an excellent education, supporting them to reach the full height of their potential.”

Nadhim Zahawi, Education Secretary

The introduction of the Schools’ Bill and reform to key guidance areas such as attendance, behaviour, SEND and safeguarding make it clear that the government is focused on its mission to drive school improvement. All schools will be under scrutiny.

In the best schools, there is a clear vision and actions are taken within the context of the school improvement plan. If it’s not in the plan, it doesn’t get done.

But what makes an effective improvement plan and how can school leaders and teachers convert a plan into tangible action to genuinely and sustainably improve their school for the benefit of students?

In this virtual masterclass, former school principal and MAT leader, now an education author and advisor, Matt Bromley, offers a raft of practical advice for leading schools to success.
